We’re always excited about anything that gets students reading more. That’s why we were so pleased to see this recent write-up, in Publishers Weekly, reporting that Capstone Digital now has over 700,000 students reading through myOn. MyOn provides students with access to thousands of digital titles targeted to their own individual reading level (based on their Lexile measure) and interest. Best of all, because myOn has embedded an assessment into the reading experience, students are continually provided new titles as their reading level grows. And because myOn is available online, students are assured always-on access; meaning they are not limited to reading only while on campus. And interest continues to grow:
Since its launch, myOn has helped increase the circulation of digital titles. In communities like Charleston, S.C., which has adopted the platform, the library circulation for digital books was more than 30 times that for print books. Said Brekhus, “Making the books accessible anytime, anywhere allowed children to read more books digitally than they had access to in print.”
Congratulations to Capstone on achieving so much in such a short period of time. We’re proud to partner with an organization so dedicated to getting more students reading everywhere.
